I ❤️️ MELBOURNE! And here's just another reason why. Re-posted from @cottageindustrystore in Fitzroy, who has uncovered the mystery of Melbourne's enigmatic Carrot man! - "The carrot man story, from the carrot's mouth... It all started with a 50 cent giant turnip from an op shop in Brunswick, carrotman noticed how people smiled as he walked around with it so he started to experiment with other giant things, a squid, a fish, a carrot, it was the carrot that brought out the smiles. He said if the squid had worked as well as the carrot eventually did, he would be known as 'Squid Man' rather than 'Carrot Man'. The carrot makes people happy, from 3 year olds up to 80 year olds. He feels that everyone likes the carrot. He has a collection of carrots for different occasions, there is a slightly battered one that he takes to circuit gay bar, it's a bit tatty and tends to go home a bit worse for wear, they are regularly patched and repaired" !! 😂 Thankyou Pene! Instagram GOLD. And Thankyou Carrotman!!! We salute you!! 🙌 (nothing is more devastating to me right now than realising there is no carrot emoji)

Today we are PUMPED because local legendary writer and editorial director of @thegoodcopy Penny Modra (@pennymodra) is our 'Monthly Musing' contributor! Penny draws a parallel between everyday life in ancient Pompeii and the modern day fear of having your messy kitchen tagged in an unapproved Instagram photo. The anxiety is real!
